I don't think either one even tries to compete with other drummers in the talent department or even cares to.
my thoughts exactly.
No disrespect to Rudd and Watts, AC/DC and the stones can still move on if they ever decide to quit.
However, when Keith Moon died, the whole band died! (Thats what uniqueness or creativity in drumming means to me)
Time keeping is hard but can be copied by a moderate drummer. All the AC/DC drummers are Time Keepers.
